to cut down on gun violence in the united states, president obama will announce an initiative tomorrow to include restrictions on guns and ammunition. good evening. i'm judy woodruff. >> brown: and i'm jeffrey brown. on the newshour tonight, we get the latest on the administration proposals and on measures being discussed in several state legislatures. >> woodruff: plus we have two separate interviews about the gun debate, with delaware governor jack markell and national rifle association president david keene. >> brown: then, spencer michels asks california governor jerry brown if his fiscal turnaround-- from a $27 billion deficit to a balanced budget-- offers a lesson for the nation. . >> you have to make tough choices. you have to live within your means. that means you have to not do everything you want to but you also have to raise more
for the meaningless queen elizabeth. president obama invited senate minority leader mitch mcconnell to two state dinners, and to celebrate the basketball team from his home state. mcconnell declined all those invitations. and president obama invited all newly elected members of congress to the white house for a reputation. less than half of the freshmen republicans attended. joining me now, howard fineman, in my experience, this socializing thing is the most overrated legislative strategy imaginable. i have never seen it matter in any way at all. if booze could do this it would have fixed a lot of things a lot easier a long time ago. >> yes, of course, and booze consumption in d.c. exceeds that in other years of the country, with the possible exception of las vegas. there was a time, a day and place when i think personal relationships did matter more. and i think when you were on the hill, when i was covering you on the hill, it was kind of the end of that era. it started not to matter around that time. one thing that has happened now, lawrence, is that members of congress spend all their time r
, president obama stated that we cannot continue to cut our way to prosperity. well, mr. president, on the contrary. we cannot tax and spend our way to prosperity either. i think tonight we're starting what i hope will become a regular occurrence. as we look at it, it's what i believe we have to do. and i believe it's about telling our story. and telling why conservative principles mat around how conservative principles, when we explain how we can get debt off their backs, spending under control, then it's freedom for their kids to have a better future. so they can go to college, so they can buy that or start that new business, to employ other people. i believe america's greatest gift was found in the free -- founding the free enterprise system and that's what we can encourage by getting our own fiscal house in order here tonight. this is a time for us to come together. and i'm pleased to stand with you and the other freshmen here tonight and as we continue to discuss just that we're here to work. we're here to make some hard choices. and realize it's all in america's best interest
few days announced ambitious legislative proposals on gun reform in their own states. and of course federally, tomorrow ahead of schedule, president obama is set to unveil his own set of proposals in response to the newtown school shooting. the white house releasing this picture today of vice president biden, presenting his findings to the president and other cabinet members in a gun policy meeting. >> i can tell you that tomorrow the president and vice president will hold an event here at the white house to unveil a package of concrete proposals to reduce gun violence and prevent future tragedies like the one in newtown, connecticut. they will be joined by children from around the country who wrote the president letters in the wake of that tragedy, expressing their concerns about gun violence and school safety along with their parents that event will be at approximately 11:45 a.m. i will not get ahead of the president in terms of what his package of proposals will include. i will simply note that the president has made clear he intends to take a comprehensive approach. he has also
and detached he is. >> did you mean to call barack obama the president of the united states lazy? >> yes. >> lazy, dumb, incompetent. and general powell said sunday when many of us in the african-american community hear lazy, the next word is shiftless. all of these are stereotypes. felons. and what is most disturbing about this is he was a surrogate for governor romney, the presidential candidate, and not one time did he denounce the statements. sununu has a right to say what he wants, but he was never, ever denounced by the campaign and he was an official representative of the campaign nap is what was so offensive, victoria. >> it was. and then in talking about this vein of intolerance, it's old wine in new bottles. regrettably we have had a history of intolerance in this country since our founding. but what has changed is where it's been housed. in the 20th century it was mainly in the democratic party. and then in about 1965 we saw that shift over to the republican party. they say that in 1965 when president johnson signed the voting rights act, he turned to bill morris' aide and sai
states capital, for those of you in washington, d.c., where in exactly one week president obama's formal inauguration ceremony will take place. they rehearsed it over the weekend, complete withstand-ins for the president and chief justice john roberts. monday's swearing-in ceremony is just part of the pageantry. there's parades, concerts and, of course, huge crowds. cnn's brian todd join us live from the national mall with an update on all the preparations. exciting time, brian. >> reporter: well, joe, it's all coming together here, less than a week out. saw the shot you mentioned. that's the west front of the capital where the president's rise to the podium is being assembled. hundreds of seats up there for vips. speakers are set up along the reflecting pool. jumbotrons will come up soon. possibly the most crucial part of the whole setup, thousand, of po port-o-johns. you can't stage an event like this without those. this event may not be the same scale as four years ago but has every bit the symbolism and the importance. this year, it will be scaled down. if you call about 900,000 peop
. but we do know the united states, the obama administration has rejected an offer to exchange an undisclosed number of american hostages. other hostages have been freed and hair he would winning new details are emerging about their treatment. for the details, let's bring in jill dougherty. she's over at the state department. jill? >> wolf, just a few minutes ago here at the state department i was upstairs, secretary clinton meeting with the japanese foreign minister and both of them discussing this crisis in algeria. she said that she had spoken yet again with her algerian counterpart and she stressed once again, she said, the upmost concern they have is for the safety and security of the hostages. but when i asked her about the criticism that's being leveled by the united states and other countries against some aspects of this operation, the algerian operation, here is what she said. >> let's not forget, this is an act of terror. the perpetrators are the terrorists. they are the ones who have assaulted this facility, have taken hostage algerians and others from around the wor
of appropriateness. i find it despicable. this is why. it's part of a larger narrative which president obama explicitly stated yesterday and impuning the motives. it's draping yourself in the emotionalness of the debate. avoiding the policy debate and impuning others. he said that there will be others that say they are doing it for money. for anyone that doesn't care about these children, only out here to be a mouthpiece of the nra or to seek some kind of money, it is showing, in the end -- this is what it shows, the inherent intellectual weakness in the argument being put forward. the inherent policy weakness of what is being suggested. just deal with it in a rational level. >> okay. so we're talking about dealing with this in an intellectual way, the nra ad using obama's children to make a point. maria in. >> to use will's word, that is absolutely despicable. the children of president, the spouses of presidents, president's families are off limits and so i think the majority of americans believe that ad was absolutely d despicable. i think bringing into this the effect that this event had
the white house, president obama in the state saying that the u.s. will continue to work with our partners. that would include algeria, to combat the scourge of terrorism in that region. more to come in northern africa. back to you. >> arthel: greg palkot, thank you very much for that report. >> rick: new coalition of gun rights supporters trying to send a message to washington proclaiming today national gun appreciation day and they're urging americans to head to local gun stores and ranges and gun shows to show their support. ironically, a couple of accidental shootings at some of those events. all of this comes as the country is debating solutions to gun violence in the wake of the tragedy in newtown, connecticut. of course, this past week when the president announced some executive orders on gun violence. catherine herridge live from warrenton, virginia. what are you hearing from gun owners? >> thank you and good evening. this is the first time here at clark brothers there have been relative peace and quiet all day. we saw play out over and over was that the parking lot was full and th
states will always, always, always meet its debt. we will never default on its debt. that was introduced in 2010. it didn't pass because harry reid and president obama didn't want it to pass. they wanted to raise the specter of a default to use. so, chuck, you and i could make news right now on national television, would you agree to support the full faith and credit act and take the possibility of a default off the table? >> i support the mcconnell proposal. let us raise the debt ceiling. no strings attached. and if the president can raise it as he should be able to and if congress wants to reject it 2/3. the mcconnell proposal is a good republican proposal. i hope you support it. that's the way to go. >> a bill that says regardless of what happens with the debt ceiling, the united states will never default on the debt, would you support that or not? >> i support the concept. i'd have to look at the bill. the best way to do that is the mcconnell act. >> we may have just made news. >>> last week, general colin powell was here worried about a dark vein of intolerance in republican quarter
the issue of syria. how does the united states, a second obama term, try to affect the end game if there's a post assad syria, which as richard laid out could be so dangerous? >> we have to understand there are limits to american power. we can't go into syria. and affect that outcome dramatically. we did make a choice in egypt. and there were a lot of diplomats in the middle east that were calling me ahead of time that i'm friends with saying it was a terrible mistake, and we'll rue the day we made that decision and abandoned a friend of 30 years. that's something that historiansville to make their minds up on. but i want to push back a little on richard as well. and richard, i'm glad you're back too, but -- don't you like how axelrod said, i'm glad you're back, but -- let me make my point. but the thing is, though, so much of the united states' power now is not going to be -- we're not going to project power by dropping drones in country after country after country where we haven't even declared war. there is going to be a terrible backlash for that. but i hate to keep going back to it,
should provide the leadership for state legislators throughout the country. president obama may be restricted in terms of what he can do by executive order but we are anxious to see what can be implemented by the executive branch and to realize that america, this is more in terms of common sense. when we have something that is hurting our children so much and killing youngsters around the country, it is time for all of the groups to come together and not to argue with each other because this is not constitutional rights. this is common sense. we know that those people that incorporated the right to bear arms was not talking about the slaughter of children that's happened in newtown, connecticut. so i am so sorry to see that the state legislator there that spoke earlier has made this a personal political issue, but i'm so proud that new york state has moved forward. >> if you're proud of what new york has done, obviously there's not going to be any perfect policy or perfect law that everybody's going to agree on from both sides saying that this is key perfection but do you think
of the president of the united states. but as president obama said yesterday, some people will use these measures to make gunowners fearful. >> even the slightest hint of some sensible, responsible legislation in this area fans this notion that somehow here it comes. and that everybody's guns are going to be taken away. >> when it comes to executive orders, president obama is hardly a tyrant. this president has issued the fewest executive orders of any president in over a century. there will be no executive order on the second amendment. this hasn't stopped the obama haters from ramping up their resistance. tea party senator rand paul is driving the campaign of fear. >> i'm against having a king. i think having a monarch is what we fought the american revolution over. and someone who wants to bypass the constitution, bypass congress, that's someone who wants to act like a king or a monarch. i've been opposed to executive orders even with republican president. but one that wants to infringe on the second amendment, we will fight tooth and nail. and i promise you there will be no rock left unturned
a look. >> please raise your right hand and repeat after me. i, barack hussein obama do solemnly swear. >> i, barack hussein obama do solemnly swear. >> that will faithfully execute. >> that i will faithfully execute. >> the office of the president of the united states. >> the office of president of the united states. >> and will to the best of my ability. >> and will to the best of my ability. >> preserve, protect and defend. >> preserve, protect and defend. >> the constitution of the united states. >> the constitution of the united states. >> so help you god. >> so help me god. >> congratulations, mr. president. >> thank you, mr. chief justice, thank you so much. [ applause ] >> thank you, sweetie. >> hey. thank you. i did it. all right. thank you, everybody. >> the president hugging his wife, the first lady, and his daughters, malia and sasha after taking that oath. he's going to do it again, he'll take the public ceremony oath and give his second inaugural address tomorrow, he's only the 17th president in u.s. history to make a second address. >> president obama followed the sweari
through a lot of these issues. and that is the complicated relationship between the united states and russia, and specifically the relationship between president obama and now the re-elected president vladimir putin. four years after pledging a reset to relations with the russian president at the time, medvedev, obama's instead dealing with a newly reelected putin, who's shown no inclination to cooperate with the united states agenda. in fact, russia dpgone out of i way to block renewed trade negotiations with north korea. after the last meeting between the two men, president obama tried to focus on the few areas of agreement, like arms control. >> we agreed that we need to build on these successes. even as we recognize that there are going to be areas of disagreement and that we can find constructive ways to manage through any bilateral tensions. >> i want to focus on this, because i think this foreign policy challenge is the biggest one nobody talks about when it comes to the united states. it's russia. the president's ability to manage these tensions and president putin's willi

-1. and there were just five state senators, including barack obama, who voted "present" on that bill. >>steve: i see the daily caller -- you've tracked down a long record on obama voting against tough on crime legislation. >> my colleague and i went to chicago. this was in the midst of the election and picked up opposition research prepared by jack ryan, obama's onetime republican senate point. he found all this information. the way he frames it, and i think it's probably right, is that obama was always very soft on crime but very tough on guns. every time obama had a crime vote to take when he was in the illinois state senate, he always voted "present" because he didn't want to -- for two reasons. one, he said that criminal law disproportionately affected african-americans. he saw a racial component there. additionally, he said i don't want to clog the court system with all these cases. what do you want to clog the court system with? we thought given his rhetoric on guns lately it would be interesting to bring up this vote where he said i don't want to give tougher prosecution to children who shoot
. >> our time is 5:04. president obama is reviewing proposals from vice president biden's gun violence task force while in new york state they will enact the most restrictive gun legislation in the country. we are live in washington, dc, with the latest from our reporter. >> good morning, president obama said he is not going to worry about the politics of gun control but will worry about what makes sense. some of the major proposals will need congressional approval. >> president obama will unveil the plan for curbing gun violence this woke promising action with or without help from congress. >> i am confident there are steps we can take that do not require legislation and are if my authority as president. >> the president's gun task force identified executive actions he can take but at the top of the list is reinstating the i salt weapons ban and extending background checks for people with purchase firearms at gun show which requires congress to act. >> members of congress have to have a debate and examine their conscience. >> according to a washington post/abc news poll there is overwhelmi
states of america. host:ing on the proposals president obama some specific legislation, 23 executive orders as we mentioned, and also a call for more federal research. louisiana, this is shanda, independent line. caller: yes. i just wanted to say, it's not about controlling guns in the hands of people who can buy guns under what the law says. criminals don't buy guns. criminals steal guns. and unless you can put a law into effect to keep criminals from breaking into people's houses and stealing guns, then making the gun laws tougher for the people that can actually buy guns to get them is not going to solve anything. host: ahead of the president's comments this morning, the hill reporting the national rifle association hours before the president debuted his plan to combat gun violence, they called the president, quote, an elitist hypocrite for opposing the gun lobby's proposal to place armed guards in schools. the white house reaction to that just before the president spoke, the white house says, the n.r.a. video referencing the president's daughters are, quote, repugnant and cowardl
